  • Gwen wrote home technical manuals for luxury mansions in Aspen and was on-site during the construction processes.
  • During her years as a contract writer, her expertise in construction and history melded with her interest in architecture and interior design.
  • In her free time, she enjoys re-finishing secondhand wooden furniture to create her own DIY decor.


Gwen started freelance writing in 2019, shortly after graduating college. She studied history in school but diverged from that path to explore technical writing and marketing for a luxury home-building company. With the freedom that freelance provides, she juggles multiple jobs at once and has ghostwritten over 1,000 lifestyle articles for small businesses. Research and writing have made her more knowledgeable on home decor, upkeep, and DIY ideas. Her favorite articles to write for House Blog often share budget-friendly decorating ideas and gardening tips.


In the fall of 2019, Gwen graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and a minor in anthropology. After attaining this degree, she earned additional certifications in marketing, SEO techniques, and Google Analytics and took on two simultaneous internships while working full-time.
